Mrs. Claus character jug - Royal Doulton 1992

Mrs. Claus character jug modeled by William K. Harper and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, in 1992 for the US market. Wife to Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus is a plump and jolly woman focused on bringing joy to children worldwide at Christmas time. The first mention of Mrs. Claus was in a March, 1881, issue of "Harper's Magazine", referring to her as "St. Nicholas' good natured frau, Molly Grietje." The modern depictions of her all seem to show Santa's wife as an older woman who loves to cook and who keeps the North Pole in order, from ironing her husband's red suit to overseeing the toy making. This miniature jug, produced as a companion to Santa Claus D6900, was given a holly wreath handle on the left side of Mrs. Claus so that the two jugs could be displayed side by side. A holly wreath forms the handle of this jug.
